    An increasingly important use of computer graphics is to monitor such real-world processes as manufacturing plants, power plants, and refineries. As in many uses of computer graphics, the development of this application area has been programmer-intensive. As a consequence, system are being developed more slowly than is desired and they cost more than necessary. This article discusses some of the k... View full abstract»

    The radiosity method models the interaction of light between diffusely reflecting surfaces and accurately predicts the global illumination effects. Procedures are now available to simulate complex environments including occluded and textured surfaces. For accurate rendering, the environment must be discretized into a fine mesh, particularly in areas of high intensity gradients. The interdependence... View full abstract»

    In a variety of species including monkeys and humans, the surface of the retina is mapped in an accurate manner to the surface of primary visual cortex. In a real sense there is an image, expressed in the firing density of neurons, impressed on the surface of the brain. The various images found in the brain have complicated natures: They are ``distorted'' by nonlinear map functions, and contain su... View full abstract»

    This article describes the requirements for a graphical format on which a graphical on-line communications protocol can be based. It is argued that on-line graphical communications is similar to graphical session capture, and thus we propose an Interactive Graphical Communications Format using the GKSM session metafile. The discussion includes items that complement the GKSM metafile as a format fo... View full abstract»
